Registration is now open for the 2nd Annual Advancing Behavioral Health Summit, being held on Monday June 10 at the Kalahari Resort and Convention Center in the Wisconsin Dells.  Please take a moment to visit the AHW website to view event details and to register here.   A block of hotel rooms is available until May 10 at the Kalahari and you may make your reservation here.

Building on the work of 10 community coalitions funded by the Endowment, and with the engagement of key strategic partners like you, this year’s summit will be focused on advancing lasting systems change in behavioral health in communities, regions, and across the state. 

The four system change theme areas that will be addressed at the summit are:

  • Increasing School Support of Students’ Social & Emotional Learning Needs
  • Increasing Early Identification of Behavioral Health Needs & Provision/Coordination of Services in Schools
  • Improving Ability of Individuals & Families to Access Services & Resources
  • Improving Employer Support for Employee Behavioral Health Needs

Identified through an extensive discovery process to represent key aspects of a multi-sector and multi-disciplinary approach to behavioral health, attendees will work in small groups with a dedicated facilitator around this issue area for each breakout time period, aiming to identify barriers within the issue, identify solutions, and propose actionable steps forward.

This is not a listen-and-learn conference --- it will be a working session designed to move from the current state to more coordinated efforts to transform behavioral health systems in ways that will support students, families, schools, providers, community organizations, and employers.  Attendees will register for one of the tracks above and will be sent a pre-event survey to inform work and ideas in that track.

Please register today!
